I live in a two story unit on the top two floors of an old building (think: "heat rises") with 12 foot ceilings. On Friday morning, my central air went on vacation, and after a few phone calls, I found out no one could come out to make repairs until Monday (at the earliest).
Since I was facing 95+ degree weather for the weekend, I decided I needed to do SOMETHING. I bought two of these little window units, and put one in upstairs and one downstairs. The temperature in my condo was at that point 94 degrees.
After two hours of operation, my condo was a comfortable 76 degrees. By Saturday, once the two A/C's had the chance to "catch up," they had no problem cooling my home to a more than comfortable 70 degrees.
I must also say that although each unit is rated to cool 150 SqFt, that is understated. The downstairs unit is cooling roughly 550 SqFt and the upstairs unit is cooling roughly 600 SqFt. They are working non-stop, but doing a great job of cooling my home.
The units are a tad on the noisy side, but not unreasonably so -- the noise has faded into the background, now that I've become used to it.
I highly recommend this product, especially considering the price and the fact that two of them are cooling 1150 SqFt to 70 degrees (despite the fact that combined they are rated to cool only 300 SqFt).
A GREAT buy, and a lifesaver on a 95 degree weekend without central air!!
I would recommend this to a friend!
